Elusive bird: Hummingbird

This is one of the most elusive subjects of photography. The bird is too small – maybe a couple of inches – darts along too fast, flaps it’s wings at a rate over 50 times per SECOND and is too scared of human beings coming near it. After taking nearly 80 shots from about 20 yards away, I was able to get three reasonable pictures. This bird, crazily enough, can fly backwards and upside down.
